These standard instructions are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice about your case. If you choose to represent yourself, you are bound by the same rules and procedures as an attorney. 

File JDF 1824 Verified Motion and Affidavit for Name Restoration After Dissolution of Marriage/Civil Union or Legal Separation in the court where the decree for dissolution of marriage/civil union or legal separation was entered. This can be done at any time after a decree has been entered in your case.    

File JDF 1825 Order for Name Restoration After Dissolution of Marriage/Civil Union or Legal Separation along with JDF 1824. Only the information in the caption box is to be filled out. The court will fill out the rest.

If you file for a name restoration within 60 days after the decree has been signed there is no filing fee. If you file with the court after 60 days then there is a filing fee of $105.00 payable to the court when you file for your name restoration.
